Former Lover

I'm not sure why this was never released as a single as it is just lovely, much better the the album version. It seems a bit weird to go to all the trouble of producing a single version of the track and then not releasing it. The original version of the song can be found on the Tiger Bay album, this version is from a limited edition fanclub only cd from 1996 entitled "Nice Price". In the booklet for the cd it states "This is the way Saint Etienne could have sounded with a little less time, a little more flexibility, or a lot less help from our friends.
